Tree Planting Program
 
Hamilton ReLeaf Network
 
In April 2008, a Tree Symposium was held to connect with community and government groups involved in programs related to trees including tree planting, land use preservation and management, naturalization, heritage trees, woodlot management and education. Following the symposium, a group of volunteers from local community groups and the City met monthly to form a collaborative and communication network called the Hamilton ReLeaf Network.
  
The Hamilton ReLeaf Network aims to facilitate the maintenance, restoration and enhancement of a healthy and sustainable forest canopy using good forestry practises in the Hamilton area by:
 
  • Encouraging partnerships


  • Education and Outreach


  • Conservation Planning from a Landscape Level
Community groups involved with programs relating to trees can contact the Hamilton ReLeaf Network
 
Hamilton Trees and Park Foundation
 
There is growing interest in Hamilton to protect, enhance and promote the health of the urban forest and to renew and improve the local system of municipal parks, natural areas and related facilities.
 
Building on this momentum, a stakeholder group has formed to facilitate the development of a Hamilton Trees and Park Foundation. Members of this group include the City of Hamilton, Environment Hamilton, the Mountainview Residents' Association, Green Venture, and the Hamilton Community Foundation.
 
Homeowner Tree Planting Program
 
The City of Hamilton offers a street tree planting, where the trees are supplied at no cost to the homeowner, but they must be planted next to the street.

Heritage Tree Program
 
The City has partnered with Clean Air Hamilton, the Hamilton Industrial Environmental Association (HIEA), the Royal Botanical Gardens, the Bay Area Restoration Council (BARC), the Hamilton Waterfront Trust, Halton Conservation, and the City of Burlington to reintroduce tree species that were once native to this area. The project involves collecting seeds from surviving trees, propagating them in a greenhouse and planting the seedlings in and around the Hamilton Harbour.
 
In 2006, 78 trees were planted along the Hamilton Beach Waterfront Trail, 10 trees were planted along the Burlington Waterfront Trail, and 35 trees were planted in the North East Shoreline Fish & Wildlife Site. The program fist began in 2005, with the planting of 100 trees along the Bayfront Park Trail.
